Sometimes when you're recording a Tour on komoot, you end up taking a detour or a wrong turn. It'd be great to remove these loops from the completed Tour at the end, to share the Tour in its best form and so that other people who copy the Tour don't follow the wrong turn too. 

Status

Komoot's recording is always based on your GPS location, as it was tracked during the recording. It ins't possible to change any of these coordinates retrospectively. 

Plans

We know that there are a lot of use cases for wanting to tidy up and correct Tours. All completed Tours on komoot are based on GPS coordinates and changing this would require deep and technical restructuring of how completed Tours are programmed in komoot. It's unlikely we'll be able to offer this feature in the near future. 

Workaround

You have some options for doing this, depending on where exactly you want to make your edit.

  1. Open the completed Tour
  2. Select the option Replan This Tour ()
  3. Choose Stick to original route, if you'd like to keep the route as close to what you did as possible, or Match route to known ways if you'd rather have the route fully adjusted to komoot's planning.
  4. Select Review Route to open the route in the Route planner
  5. Make whatever changes you'd like by adding or removing waypoints
  6. Hit Save Tour when you're done
  7. You can then export the GPX file and reupload it to komoot as a completed Tour. More information about how to do that can be found here: Export and import of GPX files 
  1. Open the completed Tour
  2. Tap More () on the top right and choose Plan similar Tour ()
  3. Choose Stick to original route, if you'd like to keep the route as close to what you did as possible, or Match route to known ways if you'd rather have the route fully adjusted to komoot's planning.
  4. Customize your route with waypoints by adding or removing waypoints
  5. Save the route when you're done
  6. You can then export the GPX file and reupload it to komoot as a completed Tour. More information about how to do that can be found here: Export and import of GPX files
